Craigslist Allstars

A young artist on an outing in the internet's social laboratory. A maximalist brouhaha of a film, where performance and intimacy melt together.

The young Finnish performance artist Samira Elagoz posts an open casting call on Craigslist, a parallel digital universe, where everyone can live out their own idea of themselves. Every encounter is a social experiment, which Samira documents (and stages) on her own terms. A magician, a lonely plumber and a soft-core porn director are some of the characters that Samira meets on her journey from Amsterdam to Tokyo. And which are immortalised in chapters that alternate from observant social realism to a (very) direct interaction between Samira and her new friends, and from a minimalist concept to a maximalist sensory bombardment of neon lights and banging electronica. The internet is a social laboratory, and 'Craigslist Allstars' gives it a cinematic form, which is dictated by the experiment itself. And Samira Elagoz also manages to demonstrate that a camera, a good idea and a solid dose of fearlessness is all you need to create a contemporary take of a post-internet documentary, where intimacy and performance melt together into a wild and unruly hybrid.
